The largest and most impressive gay club in Dallas, Station 4 (aka S4)
(3911 Cedar Springs Rd.
, 214-526-7171) is part of the huge entertainment complex along Oak Lawn's famed "gay nightlife strip" that includes JR's video bar and Sue Ellen's lesbian bar. The club encompasses a cavernous downstairs space with a dance floor, and a roomy and inviting outdoor patio on two levels. Upstairs, the Rose Room Theatre and Lounge presents some of the funniest and wildest drag shows in the country. For serious revelers, dancers, cruisers, and fans of gay clubbing, S4 is a must. The club is closed Monday and Tuesday; open to the 18-and-over set Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday; and 21-and-over Friday and Saturday nights.
